San’s delectable menu bursts with a medley of homemade thin crust pizzas, piping pastas, and hearty sandwiches crafted with fresh ingredients.

Silence trilling tummies with specialty pizzas, such as the rail-thin Cara’s Crispino sprinkled with tomato, basil, garlic, and balsamic ($2.50 / slice, $18.95 / 16’’x16’’), or the Balls of Fire pizza, a pizza topped with cheese and pizza sauce combined with a special hot sauce, meatballs, jalapeno and crushed red peppers ($18.95 / 18" large). Homemade manicotti ($10.95) and lasagna ($10.75 for cheese, $11.75 for beef) soak in flavorsome lochs of house marinara, and a bevy of hot and cold sandwiches ably sate bun enthusiasts ($5–$8.75).
Papa John's has carefully crafted a menu of specialty pizzas to satisfy any taste or mouth shape.

The Lucky Dill piles tables high and fills stomachs with mountainous signature sandwiches and an assortment of desserts prepared in its bakery. The menu proffers leaning towers of spiced and cured, hot, navel pastrami on a choice of bread including New York rye and sesame rolls ($9.29). The reuben stacks grilled rye bread with corned beef, sauerkraut, and swiss cheese ($9.99). Instead of a powdered wig and a dainty crown, the Queens burger sports a half-pound patty of freshly chopped sirloin topped with onion, mushrooms, and swiss cheese ($8.79). The on-site Brooklyn Bakery crafts an array of meal codas, including the big apple dumpling, which contains an entire apple baked within the loving embrace of pastry and topped with caramel sauce and whipped cream ($5.49).
Simply Delish's kitchen prodigies prepare house-made sauces to dress up a menu of family recipes inspired by Korean, Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese dishes. Don protective goggles before experiencing the plated energy of fusion starters such as seafood-coconut ceviche ($7.50) and veggie pot stickers served with garlic-soy vinaigrette ($4.90). Wax poetic with companions over show-stopping entrees—such as the bulgogi-beef bowl, featuring delicately carved rib eye soused in korean-barbecue sauce ($8.90), or the miso-glazed salmon ($8.90)—instead of poetically waxing upper lips to achieve a more literary look. While sipping coconut water ($2.25) or jasmine iced tea ($1.75), those with vegetarian songs to sing can duet with a savory tofu burger ($5.75) or panang curry with mixed veggies and silky tofu ($7.90) that doubles as a soy-rich ascot.
